Caardvark's "Tree's a Crowd" Challenge




Happy Earth Day! I decided this was the perfect day to work on the current challenge over at Caardvarks. I had a new Cottage Cutz tree die from The Scrapping Cottage and was dying to use it. I originally planned to do something all Springy and floral when I came upon my rather neglected Green Stack from DCWV. PERFECT! How more Earth friendly could I get? I'm afraid I'm rather stuck on these popped frames lately but I couldn't help using my Labels 1 Nesties set. The colors turned out to be fairly masculine so I restrained myself on the embellies and chose not to use a sentiment to keep it versatile but all in all I don't think it turned out half bad.

  27. This turned out absolutely gorgeous. I love the tree paper, and the spots in the background, and how the tree pops out from the rest of the card. It all fits together beautifully.
